Subject Apache Thrift 0.13.0 Release
Date Wed, 16 Oct 2019 21:59:20 GMT
Hi folks,

Apache Thrift 0.13.0 has been released.  

Some of the mirror sites are still being updated, that may take some hours to complete. Meanwhile,
in the unlikely case that you can't find any working mirror, you can download source tarballs
and a statically linked windows thrift executable from the GitHub release page, which contains
a link to all of the release notes as well:

As part of the 0.13.0 release we have deprecated:

* C# (use netstd instead)
* netcore (use netstd instead)

Main reason is that future C# evolution is announced to be heading towards .NET Core, the
other reason for this step is the simple fact that maintaining two parallel C# branches turned
out to work less ideal than planned. So the decision was made to converge both into a new
netstd target, reaping the best fruits of both libraries while focusing on modern C# development
as much as possible. In this version both C# and netcore targets are still supported to allow
for a smooth transition. There is also some basic documentation in the /lib/csharp folder
to help you with the process of migrating your code base. Especially if you are coming from
C# you may need to plan for some efforts, since netstd is purely async/await only.

There are far more changes, more than I can list here. All the details can be found as usual
in the changelog and the various JIRA tickets.

Finally, I want to take the opportunity to a) thank Jim for his work in the last months, and
b) cite the following paragraph from one of his past release emails:

> We're still looking for folks who are interested in being language experts
> for thrift.  We have a number of languages with little representation on
> the current committer team.  If you are passionate about a particular
> language and you want to see thrift available and grow in capability and
> stability for that language, please visit the Apache Thrift Jira
> <> site and look for
> open issues for your language in the THRIFT project.  Get involved!  Submit
> pull requests.  Your work will not go unnoticed.

I furthermore would also like to thank every contributor and every active committer who helped
to bring another release of Apache Thrift to fruition. You are the people who make Open Source

Have fun,
